Real Madrid return to Santiago Bernabéu after the disappointing draw against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League. Los Blancos continue to suffer at home this season, although they won the last game in La Liga (2-0) against Espanyol. Zidane’s side keeps missing many chances and Karim Benzema has been criticized this week. He should start together with Cristiano Ronaldo, but Marco Asensio could also be included in the line-up. Bale, Carvajal and Kovacic are still injured. Besides, Keylor Navas got injured against after the game in Champions League, so Casilla will be the goalkeeper.
